Professors Jacquelyn Cuneen, Ray Schneider, and Nancy Spencer from Bowling Green State University's Sport Management program review the growth of sports collecting from local markets and personal interactions to an internet-based global marketplace. This workshop looks at the exponential growth in sport memorabilia collecting in historical and modern terms. Specifically, the presenters address the historical and contemporary meaning of celebrity and fame, how sports collectibles accrue in value, and the impact of the internet on the collectibles marketplace.
